A collection of pooled blood in the thigh within a relatively constricted area. Thigh hematomas probably accompany all serious contusions of the thigh, but they are difficult to diagnose because of the large muscle mass in the thigh.
Body Parts Involved
Thigh, including soft tissue (nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles and blood vessels) surrounding the hematoma.
CausesDirect injury, usually with a blunt object. Bleeding into tissues causes the surrounding tissue to be pushed away.
Signs & Symptoms
Note:- Follow your doctor's instructions. These instructions are supplemental.
Use instructions for R.I.C.E., the first letters of rest, ice, compression and elevation.
Non-prescription medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
Topical liniments and ointments.
During recovery, eat a well-balanced diet that includes extra protein, such as meat, fish, poultry, cheese, milk and eggs. Increase fiber and fluid intake to prevent constipation that may result from decreased activity.
Wear appropriate protective gear and equipment, such as thigh pads, during competition or other athletic activity if there is a risk of a thigh injury.
